Big updates on Product, Tokens, and Community

We will launch a 5th pool as a staging ground. The pool will be LINK-ETH. We need about $5m TVL to commence trading on this pool and will shift 1.5% pool weights towards it.

Hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend! We certainly had an eventful one!

Product | “Aggressive Innovation, Responsibly”

– Additional security for enabling trading is ready. We spent most of this time creating a custom simulation framework to run tens of thousands of trades through our system to bound all sources of numerical errors.

– We will launch a 5th pool as a staging ground. The pool will be LINK-ETH. We need about $5m TVL to commence trading on this pool and will shift 1.5% pool weights towards it.

– More details will be released soon.

Tokens | “Thinking Long Term”

– Rates halved, TVL didn’t blink an eye. Wow.

– We heartily thank our LP family for thinking long term with us. You won’t be disappointed. We have so so much more to show you.

– The Optimistic APY (based on near $1B valuation) is proving very realistic. We will start using $1B valuation to compute estimated APYs.

– Public Sale is coming up after trading launch is rolled out.

Community | “Before we had $700m TVL, we had 300 Heroes”

– Re-affirming Hero & SuperHero Programs | For their long time contribution, a prize pool of 30 ITGR is being awarded to existing Heroes through voting. Heroes are true believers in Integral and NOT about quid-pro-quo. But having some stake in the protocol opens up horizons for budding faith, so occasionally, we open up ways to acquire a stake in Integral through good community work. If you think of yourself as a potential long-term supporter, please consider applying to be a Hero. #🎟become-a-hero

– Launching #💡help-desk | Reverted transactions sometimes happen, and it’s becoming a financial burden for our community members with smaller stacks. We hear you. We are here to help you through this. If you have experienced such losses and believe a refund would help with your situation, please submit a request in our discord #help-desk. We can only afford to refund you with ITGR (with vesting) right now, but we will start to issue refunds in ETH once we have conducted our public sale.
